George Michael (25/06/63 – 25/12/16) was a singer, song writer and producer. One of the greatest pop vocalists that the UK has ever produced and was one of the bestselling male pop artists of all time. George achieved worldwide success as lead vocalist of the pop duo Wham selling over 28 million records, however, it was with making the career move to go it alone that his career transformed into pop superstar status, selling over 115 million records worldwide in a solo career featuring an array of major hit singles from his original material studio albums Faith, Listen Without Prejudice Vol 1, Older and Patience with his music increasingly containing biographical content or expressing his views.
In a career where various scandals often grabbed the headlines, it was always his voice – soulful, sweet, powerful and wide ranging – that remained the constant. A great philanthropist, following his death many great charitable acts came to light. Holding a dear and affectionate place in the hearts of his fans worldwide, the singer is sadly missed but his art and brilliant body of work lives on.

I wanted to focus, work on and present a new show but it had the be the right show. I experimented briefly with shows and styles that I had worked on previously but having already achieved the goals in those areas it felt like a definite step back instead of moving forward.
The seed of inspiration of a show to pay tribute to and celebrate the great songs of George Michael blossomed and it was the perfect fit – everything I had been looking for on a creative and inspirational level. I hope to do George proud vocally and everyone involved in the show feels it is hugely important, now more than ever, that we are reminded of George’s music, his message and the values of liberty and freedom that he stood for, that are truly under threat today. Me and my team look forward to making the George Michael Songbook a memorable celebration of the great man and his music.
The incredibly talented and unique George Michael. Such a once in a lifetime voice and an amazing songwriter and creative artist. I loved his honesty, vulnerability and his humanity. He was a beautiful soul, always searching, truthful and reflective about the roads that his life took him along. I can really connect with him on a personal level. It’s an honour to portray such a legend.
